Tooele City provides a bulky waste pickup program. The pick up day will be once a month for those items which do not normally fit into your trash container. This service is being provided at no additional cost to Tooele City residents and will go a long way in cleaning up our city and keeping it clean. The guidelines for pickup are as follows:
Bulky waste will be picked up from the curb in front of each home one day each month, that day being in conjunction with your normal pickup day. The pickup schedule is:
|Normal Garbage Pickup Day||Bulky Waste Pickup Day|
|Monday||1st Thursday of each month|
|Tuesday||2nd Thursday of each month|
|Wednesday||3rd Thursday of each month|
|Thursday & Friday||4th Thursday of each month|
For this type of pickup it is required to BAG, BUNDLE, or BOX your items.
Bulky waste service is provided year round with the exception of inclement weather. Your bulky waste should be placed curbside the day before pickup day.
SIZE AND WEIGHT
The driver loads the bulky waste by hand. Therefore bagging, bundling, or boxing is required. Boxes must be 30 gallons or smaller (DO NOT set out boxes in wet weather). Bundles of limbs must be less than 18" diameter, less than 5 feet long, and weigh less than 75 pounds.
If materials you put out are improperly prepared, they will not be picked up.
APPLIANCES AND FUNITURE
This service provides for the curbside collection of old appliances, furniture, and carpet including couches and mattresses. Get them to the curb and they will be removed (items with freon must have the freon removed and then a label placed on the item indicating such removal). If you have any questions, contact Steve at Ace Disposal at 882-7009.
YARD TRIMMINGS AND LIMBS
Generally, anything you can get inside your container should go in there. If you trim your trees or clean out the garden and occasionally have too much yard waste for your can, we can get it on bulky waste day. Everything except large limbs (larger that 4" in diameter) must bagged, bundled or boxed. Loose piles of yard trimmings and limbs won't be picked up. Remember, these bundles must be less than 5 feet and weigh less than 75 pounds. If you are in between pickup days, always remember that the Tooele County Solid Waste Disposal Facility will take green waste for a fee of $7.00 per load. Questions about fees and other items for the Tooele County Solid Waste Disposal Facility may be directed to 833-9520.
RUBBISH (WOOD, PLASTICS, METAL, LEATHER)
If you clean out the garage, basement or closets and have a box of old worn-out junk to get rid of, put it out on bulky waste day and Ace will pick it up. Remember, this service is intended to help with those once or twice a year cleanup projects. Our intention is to containerize all of our weekly waste. If you consistently have more than you can get in your cart, you need to obtain a second can.
CONSTRUCTION AND DEMOLITION WASTE
Construction and demolition waste generally won't be collected on bulky waste day. Although, if you box up the leftovers from last weekend's home improvement project, we'll take them. If you just tore down that old shed in the backyard, you need to make arrangements to take it to the landfill. If you need more information regarding the Tooele County Solid Waste Disposal Facility, please call 833-9520.
All of the normal, everyday household garbage you generate (like food waste and packaging) must be disposed of weekly in your big green cart. The State Health Department requires that garbage be collected weekly. If you consistently generate more than you can stuff into the cart, we'll bring you a second cart for an additional $5.50 per month.
You can request an additional container by calling 843-2150. We will not pickup extra garbage outside the cart on your normal collection day or bulky waste day.
You can get rid of grass clippings by composting them in your backyard or by buying a mulching blade for your lawnmower and just leaving them on the lawn. If you don't leave the grass too long between mows, it won't leave a mess. If you want to dispose of your clippings, put them in a bag or dump clippings on top of other garbage in your cart so they don't get stuck in the bottom. Leaving a bag of grass clippings lying around in the hot summer sun waiting for bulky waste collection day conjures up visions of awful sights and smells. Grass clippings are not to be put out for bulky waste collection.
Paints, oil, solvents, bug spray, weed killer, batteries, old car parts, fertilizers and such are considered household hazardous wastes and will not be collected. You can get more information about their collection by calling 843-2340.
OTHER PROHIBITED ITEMS
Any kind of waste from business, tires or piles of brick, broken concrete or dirt will not be collected. For more information on disposing of these materials call Tooele County Solid Waste Disposal Facility at 833-9520.
RIGHT OF REFUSAL
The bulky waste collector has the discretion to refuse items which do not meet these guidelines or that which he believes will pose a risk to human health
